May 17, 2022 - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has released its early estimate of traffic fatalities for 2021. NHTSA projects that an estimated 42,915 people died in motor vehicle traffic crashes last year, a 10.5% increase from the 38,824 fatalities in 2020.
The projection is the highest number of fatalities since 2005 and the largest annual percentage increase in the Fatality Analysis Reporting System’s history. Behind each of these numbers is a life tragically lost, and a family left behind.

May 17, 2022 - The cybersecurity firm NCC Group just demonstrated that millions of locks worldwide can be unlocked by hackers using a vulnerability in Bluetooth technology, and a Tesla was the company’s prime example.
Tesla vehicles, like the Model 3 and Model Y, use a technology called Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) that allows owners to unlock and operate their vehicles via their phones within a short range of the vehicle.
They don’t require any user interaction with the device to do so. As for the vulnerability, all the hardware you need to hack/break into and drive these cars away is easily found, for the NCC Group says it only requires “cheap off-the-shelf hardware” to hack a car or device using BLE technology from anywhere in the world. Yes, this hack is doable from anywhere — the hacker doesn’t need to be standing in your driveway to gain access.
